2020 Community Involvement
Annual School Supply Drive
Supporting our community, fundraising, and helping those in need is a core component of our practice dating back to the 1930’s. Since March, we have had to put all community efforts on hold, which has been a very hard thing for us to do. Every August for as long as we can remember focused on collecting backpacks and school supplies for local children that are in need. Both our team and our patients look forward to this cause every year and the impact it has. There are many unknowns as to what this school year will look like. Whether it be in person or virtual, we support all the parents and their decision. Due to COVID-19 we are unfortunately not permitted to collect supplies, but we are however still looking to help those in need. If you know someone local that could use our financial support this upcoming school year, please let us know! We will be providing local families with a gift card donation for items that will support them this upcoming year. We welcome all patients and members of the community to do the same. Feel free to bring in a Staples, Walmart, or Target gift cards and drop them off at the front desk anytime.
Children’s Dental Health Month, February 2020
Dental Health starts as a child so Campi Cares has taken an invested interest in making sure parents have accessibility to tips to support each and every parent since they play a vital role in their children’s oral health. Developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. You can start by setting an example; taking good care of your own teeth sends a message that oral health is something to be valued. Anything that makes taking care of teeth fun, like brushing along with your child or letting them choose their own toothbrush, encourages proper oral care.
- Clean your babies gums after feedings.
- Once teeth grow in, start brushing with a soft brush.
- Schedule their first dental visit around their 1st birthday.
- Brush twice a day. Use a pea-sized dab of toothpaste with a soft-bristled toothbrush.
- Wear a mouth guard in sports to protect your teeth.
- Avoid sugary snacks and drinks.
- Assign the responsibility of brushing to your child.

Our doctors and team are excited to be visiting schools within our community throughout the month of February. They will be discussing the importance of oral health with the children and teachers as well as handing out oral hygiene bags that include take home guides for proper brushing and flossing. Stay tuned for some great photos documenting the times spent at schools.
